Barn owl chicks put spotlight on wise moves

Prolific birdlife is a sign that the soil, biodiversity and general environment is in good heart. Newborn barn owl chicks in a nest on one of the GFC farms last year was not only a very special sight but true validation of the work that has gone into restoring the farm’s natural assets.


Three of our GFC farms, Tim’s, Michael’s and Jake’s, have been approached to run bird ringing projects to gather the data beyond the anecdotal, and the results say it all. By attaching and monitoring with small metal number rings, these projects are gathering information on the productivity, survival and movement of birds and we are really proud that the project leaders cannot believe the numbers.

Want to become a member and receive regular updates and exclusive access to articles? We set up The Green Farm Collective to support other farmers to adopt a more regenerative farming approach on whatever scale and at whatever stage they’re at. The mission is two-fold: to sustain the farm through regeneration, with a view to also building in financial reward for the work we are doing to enhance carbon capture and biodiversity to help compensate against the loss of BPS. We openly share what we are doing with integrity, acting as a trusted voice for farmers. We are currently working on a constitution for growing regenerative food that we would like to see in the future provide an assurance for consumers who want to select healthy, nutrient-rich foods grown from this source.
